Mastering Self

masters, wise men, fools

what's the difference?

who makes the rules?

coz' they get broken eventually

that's their appeal



masters, be at war or peace

like life

they build up and break down

leaving life or death

in their wake



got nothing to live up to

even when they fail

 is paradise in hell

has heaven been on earth?



time will tell

has it been worth it

what is your life worth?

resist dismiss

this constant struggle



an eternal youthful mind

constantly engaging

positively life affirming

existence is what

is at stake
